Danish Estates: Ben Wade Danish Hand Model Smooth Freehand (100) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-001-35501

The Ben Wade name has a long, winding history. Founded in 1860 in Leeds, Yorkshire, the marque manufactured pipes there for over a century, the factory weathering German air raids during World War II. Lane Ltd. purchased Ben Wade in 1962, later partnering with the legendary Preben Holm to release a line of Danish Fancy Freehands, as seen here. Combining sharp line work and sweeping curves, this Freehand from Ben Wade exudes an energetic character in its design. The bowl combines the angularity of the Pickaxe and the conical figure of the Dublin, with thick walls flaring high from a spurred heel to a plateau-crowned rim. A spurred shank transitions from the bowl and makes a sharp turn upward, where it then flares to a plateaued face. Paired to the shank is a demurely bent push-style stem featuring two pronounced expansion rings for a stylish flair The stummel wears a warm hazelnut stain highlighting striking vertical grain around the bowl.
